Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:
Ten Apples Up on Top, by Dr. Seuss, This delightful book forms part of the second stage in HarperCollins’ major Dr. Seuss rebrand programme. With the relaunch of 10 more titles in August 2003, such all-time favourites as How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? and Dr. Seuss’ Sleep Book boast bright new covers that incorporate much needed guidance on reading levels: Blue Back Books are for parents to share with young children, Green Back Books are for budding readers to tackle on their own, and Yellow Back Books are for older, more fluent readers to enjoy. Ten Apples Up On Top belongs to the Green Back Book range.

In math, will continue working with numbers. We will work with numbers 0-14 on how to represent and idenify using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, and name of the number, one-to-one correspondence, and sequencing. We will also be working with Measurement. Children will be able to measure objects using measurement references.

Our Nursery Rhyme this week is: “1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Once I Caught a Fish Alive
We are attaching you the link of the videos of this song we will be learning throughout the week. We will learn two versions of this nursery rhyme. Just a little tip to have fun at home listening and acting out our song.
